Insert date in Word

  frenchman96 08:48 23 Nov 2007

When writing letter using Word, I always insert date using the shortcut ctrl-alt-D and I configured it in such a way that when I open a doc, today's date would show.

By this I mean that if I open a "saved" letter written last month, todays date will show and that is not practical of course for if I want to copy/scan the letter, the date it was written wont show.

Does anyone know how to correct this please.

I did that but why would I type in a date? do you mean to insert on a letter I am writing?

Insert>Date & Time then select the format you want and make sure that Update Automatically is not checked.
